on that? >> as mike reported president obama is looking to break the fiscal cliff negotiations by giving an ultimatum to republicans either compromise on the budge deal or risk facing an up or down vote in the senate on a basic proposal that would include many elements that were previously rejected by the g.o.p. how well the next couple of display out and will the president's tactics work? joining us is jamie weinstein. what do you think of that? >> i don't know if his threats are going to work very much because even his proposal has to have the acquiescence of all senators. the fact of the matter is senators know whether they do something or not the next day after the fiscal cliff there is going to be a bill in congress to lower tax rates after all the tax rates expire below $250,000. maybe at this point it looks like the big win that the republicans might get, if you want to call it that, is extending that slightly upwards to $400,000 or $500,000. this is bare bones deal. we're not solving our fiscal approximate and not discussing it. this is going to be fought another day, perhaps in

on the fiscal cliff deadline on december 31st. retiring senator joe lieberman puts the potential failure in historic perspective. >> i feel it's more likely we will go over the cliff than not, and if we allow that to happen, it will be the most colossal, consequential act of congressional irresponsibility in a long time, maybe ever in american history. >> when i listen to the president, i think the president is eager to go over the cliff for political purposes. i think he sees a political victory at the bottom of the cliff. he gets all this additional tax revenue for new programs. he gets to cut the military, which democrats have been calling for for years, and he gets to blame republicans for it. >> so, hey, merry christmas. our white house correspondent brianna keilar is traveling with the president in honolulu. brianna, are the white house and republicans even talking? >> reporter: no. they're not, carol. there's no substantive discussions going on between the white house and senate democrats and senate republicans and house republicans. and this is key because in order for the cliff

much. lawmakers speaking out on this sunday about the looming fiscal cliff, at this moment the negotiations appear to be at a stand still, but we keep players in this on christmas break of course. and serious questions on whether compromise can be reached at all. as you probably know now, no deal would make a crippling amount of tax hikes and spending that could send us back into recession, you've heard that over and over. steve, at this point what are the chances that a grand bargain can still be struck? >> well, harris, it's possible, but getting less likely because it just really isn't a lot of time left. house speaker john boehner will be back next year and for now, he's thrown the ball into the democrats court and some republicans are saying the president isn't really trying to avoid that fiscal cliff. >> when i listen to the president, i think the president is eager to go over the cliff for political purposes. i think he sees a political victory at the bottom of the cliff. he gets all of this additional tax revenue for new programs and gets to cut the military which d

people are saying this fiscal cliff deal isn't going to happen pause the two sides are too far apart and there simply isn't enough time yet. mark, i will begin with you, what happens if we go over the cliff? what will americans experience? >> well i think we are going to go over the cliff. quite frankly i think it is a good thing the prospects of getting a deal after january 1 are significantly higher and that is for three reasons. first now president obama has all the leverage. after january 1st the leverage shifts to the gop. because president obama perfectly going over the fiscal cliff to blame republicans because he can't default on the debt. he will have to compromise between now and february. second of all the baseline gets reset if the tax cuts expire. everybody will propose a tax cut in january and right now we're fighting whether to increase taxes or not. you can see possibility of a deal seen as win-win for both sides. third, if republicans don't come up with a deal, a bad deal right now, they still have the $800 billion in revenue they put on the table from limiting deduct
